Computer giant, Microsoft has announced the launch of Microsoft 365 Education in Nigeria – a single, affordable technology solution built to simplify knowledge transfer from teachers to students in schools.The solution brings together Office 365, Windows 10, Intune for Education, Minecraft: Education Edition and Enterprise Mobility + Security, in a single cloud-based package.

The Education Programme Manager, Microsoft Nigeria, Ms. Jordan Belmonte, while speaking at the launch this week at the Microsoft ‘Windows in the Classroom’ event organized in partnership with Sidmach, an indigenous ICT firm said the solution provides easy and skillful modes of modern teaching.

“With mounting pressure on educational institutions to continually improve students’ achievement and prepare them with skills they will need when they enter the workforce, the aim of Microsoft 365 Education is to get schools up and running faster through simplified acquisition and deployment.

“This eliminates wasted time and delivers new capabilities to teachers and students to help them learn and work in new ways,” she said.

Also, the Senior Director, Digital Education Transformation, Microsoft Europe, Middle East and Africa, Mrs. Jaye Richards-Hills while giving her presentation said there has been a shift from the traditional teacher-led mode of learning to a more collaborative mode, adding that gone were the days when the teacher was an all-knowing instructor, as the pupils now have access to knowledge through technology.

“The desire to prepare students for the future is what is propelling Microsoft to build technology that’s easy to use and empowering for both teachers and students,’’ she said.

“Microsoft 365 Education makes it possible to unlock creativity in each student with immersive and engaging apps like Minecraft: Education Edition. It enhances independence and efficiency for students of all abilities using intelligent tools built into office apps,” she said.
